Gene: Pparg (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pparg
Name: peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; E-box binding activity; and arachidonic acid binding activity. Predicted to contribute to sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including brown fat cell differentiation; cellular response to lithium ion; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleus. Used to study abdominal obesity-metabolic syndrome; congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 2; familial partial lipodystrophy; primary pulmonary hypertension; and systemic lupus erythematosus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including cardiovascular system disease (multiple); end stage renal failure; familial combined hyperlipidemia; lipodystrophy (multiple); and obesity. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; alimentary system; genitourinary system; musculoskeletal system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human PPARG (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
